Good evening boys and girls! Let me kick off by saying sorry.
I’ve been super slack for over two months now and the worst part is the I didn’t even have the guts to show my face again (well, my internets face at least) and explain where I’ve been. I’d like to be able to tell you that I had some amazing excuse like work has been really busy or I had some personal reasons that kept me from posting, but the truth is that I was just unmotivated and slack. I honestly haven’t touched a modification since the Speedswarm and the only reason I got back into it tonight is because I had to fix a Stampede for someone else ahead of a game on Saturday. This then got me thinking about FDG and the guilt built up enough until I ended up in front of my keyboard, as I type this now.
So again, sorry for both the lack of posts and the lack of explanation.
That doesn’t meant that I haven’t been thinking about the blog and the direction it’s gone over these last 18+ months though. What was originally intended to be a resource for new modders has slowly transformed more into my own personal game log, and not a very good one at that. Partially I’ll blame my own lazy-ness here, photo dumps from games are significantly easier to prepare than full mod posts when there’s a deadline looming, but a big part of it is that I simply ran out of blasters to mod. With that in mind I’m going to be dropping the weekly posting schedule and instead posting whenever I have something worth posting, rather than posting for the sake of posting. With a bunch of new blasters soon to be released this should still mean fairly regular posts, but dropping the deadline should result in better quality and more consistent mod guides. My rants will still appear from time to time, but the mod posts will make up a larger proportion of the site.
I’ve also got a few other projects I’m working on that I’m pretty excited to show everyone, but they can wait until everything is completely ready to go public before we need to talk about them.
Thanks to everyone out there though. You’ll all be seeing more on here soon enough.
